Brushtail possums watching me work


Welcome to my home page.

Here you can sample some of my published poems; find out what's coming; get in touch; and see some nice pictures taken at our Brogo property.

I hope you can find time one day to listen to some of the recordings on the Poets of the Bega Valley Shire Audio Project

My most recent book is The Effective Butterfly. Sample the poems here.

My fifth book was The Solution to Us. You can sample the poetry and even watch the 2008 launch on-line here. The Solution to Us was Shortlisted for the ACT Writing and Publishing Awards (Poetry) for 2009.

My fourth book Verbal Medicine: Twenty-One Contemporary Clinician-Poets of Australia and New Zealand was the subject of a Radio National broadcast in March 2008. This episode of Poetica will be re-broadcast in May 2011.

Verbal Medicine was Winner of the ACT Writing and Publishing Awards (Poetry) for 2007. 

There is an interview with me on ABC My Country (15th of May 2007)
